Deadline is a gripping page turner about three best friends from boyhood through their days in the war are caught in a car accident on a rainy day in Oregon as they drive home from a pizza shop. The story picks up with one of the three, Jake, the reporter, awaking in the hospital and finding out that it was no accident. Thus begins a journey during which his popular beliefs about life, meaning and morality are challenged in a very personal way.
Randy Alcorn navigates through several modern issues with interesting characters, a well-written story, and provides enough twists and turns to keep the reader interested a look at life through Jake's eyes and his changing perspective. Whether you believe in Heaven and live with an eternal perspective or not, this book is a great read. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a mystery and wants to know something about absolute truth. The story was in the details. I was completely taken by surprise.
